I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:
May 11

THANK ME FOR YOUR PROBLEMS. As soon as your mind gets snagged on a difficulty, bring it to Me with thanksgiving. Then ask Me to show you My way to handle the situation. The very act of thanking Me releases your mind from its negative focus. As you turn your attention to Me, the problem fades in significance and loses its power to trip you up. Together we can deal with the situation, either facing it head-on or putting it aside for later consideration.
Most of the situations that entangle your mind are not today’s concern: you have borrowed them from tomorrow. In this case, I lift the problem out of today and deposit it in the future, where it is veiled from your eyes. In its place I give you My Peace, which flows freely from My Presence.

   Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,
   by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
   your requests to God. ー Philippians 4:6

   ”Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not
   give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be
   troubled and do not be afraid.” ー John 14:27
